It is several months since my last post. This is a short update for those who are interested in how antibiotics return to some people lives that were thought lost for always.
In Sept., 2004 I was very dim and fading fast when my sister found the work of David Wheldon and Charles Stratton based on the cause of MS as a bacterium of the Chlamydia family, a nasty, devious bug not even discovered until 1986, I believe. Being unsound of mind and body but still hoping for a reprieve, I began my long trek. It is now very much a new dawn every day. I could not then walk five feet and can now run/walk a mile in the middle of a normal day, I was exhausted by any very small task and now do not have nearly enough hours in any day to accomplish my self-assigned list of jobs, my hips and other joints hurt agonizingly and now do not. My schedule , and those of all of us on this rewarding regimen, is not easy, but for those who can stay with it, is filled with gifts.
2010 5 years 4 months Now on Amoxicillin, Doxy, Rifampin, Azith, and caffeine in addition to flagyl. 90% normal good days-50% normal bad days. That is a good thing.
